WaterGrass Fall Festival for Residents Was a Huge Success: Photos

It’s great to live in a community where you get the chance to celebrate holidays and seasons with your neighbors. At the WaterGrass Club, residents recently enjoyed a Fall Festival together hosted by the CDD. The event included a hayride, emoji ball toss, candy sand art, plinko, and a spin wheel. Children enjoyed making candy apple teeth with peanut butter and marshmallows, and everyone loved eating delicious Halloween snack mix and cotton candy.

Check out a few photos from the event!

Aside from the entertainment offered constantly at the Shops at WireGrass, you’ll find nearby golf and tennis at Saddlebrook Resort and Spa, the Groves 16 Theatre and Cinebistro when you want to catch a movie, and of course, all of the sports, museums, and attractions that

WaterGrass Hosts 30+ Area Realtors from Berkshire Hathaway

In early June, we were pleased to host over 30 realtors from The Florida Properties Group of  Berkshire Hathaway at the WaterGrass Club for a breakfast and conference. Here they had the chance to bring together a few of their offices, as well as to learn about the exciting new events and happenings at WaterGrass, including the recent Club Expansion with a fitness center, gathering room, and Jr. Olympic swimming pool. They were able to tour both the Club Expansion and all of the decorated models available from our fabulous builders.

They also enjoyed time to talk about their four-year strategic plan and the values of Berkshire Hathaway. We were happy to host the realtors and to provide pastries, fruit, and coffee, and to learn more about this great company. Thank you, Berkshire Hathaway, for partnering with us for this event.
